Re: Updated bloodwork - what does it mean?
I'm new here, but your post is something I've been wondering. I am a 3rd generation of women with autoimmune disorders. My grandmother died from internal scleroderma (so I was told), my aunt has Raynaud's and I was dx w/SS in 2009. My symptoms are changing. They are branching out and effecting me in more ways than the initial depilating fatigue and arthritis. My 1st test results were pos for ANA and SS-B, but the gen MD and Rheumatologist acted like it's nothing and put me on meloxicam for arthritis.
How did your doctor explain the different test results? Is there different degrees of SS? I would love to know if SS is something that indeed goes in a remission state and how is that done? I know there are flare ups. My flare ups seem to start just as the previous one starts to calm down. My ENT is interested in SS. He says I should have nerve damage based on my hearing tests and that it is amazing that my hearing comes and goes.
Anywho, was just interested that your tests changed...........
